War and famine on earth had been abolished by Moral Reclamation, and now peace and prosperity were compulsory. And the Morec block committees, robot peeping-Toms, and youthful goon squads made sure everybody 'enjoyed' it. It was Allen Purcell's job as the new Director of Entertainment and Propaganda to keep people in sober thought channels. Only someone was playing pranks-publicly, secretly. Such humor was dangerous and the heretic had to be stopped at all costs! As frightening as Orwell's 1984, THE MAN WHO JAPED is a social satire on the world of tomorrow that is as timely as today.
